Here's a question which we should be looking at ~ the said 2GB ROM and how 1.8GB is mentioned to be left over for users to store Applications. The thing is, ROM is Read Only Memory! ROM is used to store the initial program and instructions that run when the phone is powered or otherwise begins execution (a process known as bootstrapping or booting-up). All computer related hardware requires some form of initial accessible memory to record changes in its state as it executes. However, it can not be modified easily and once the Operating System files and other stored data which is shipped on the ROM is accessed it's only other use is for distributing firmware changes/updates to the systems operational use. Therefore, how is it people are talking of being able to access the 1.8GB of ROM on the Galaxy S i9000 and use it to store applications? ROM and writing applications to it just don't go together hand in hand.
